I was a heavy smoker for about 7 years. Now I am almost quieting. And I want to go to gym. Can there be side affects if I go to gym? What else can I do?

Give it time. there will not be any side effects or withdrawal symptoms. Take care.

There are six important symptoms that you can check for yourself and see if you are experiencing similar difficulties and how intense they are. 1. Trouble concentrating and staying focused. 2. Hyper-focus. 3. Disorganization and forgetfulness. 4. Impulsivity. 5. Emotional difficulties. 6. Hyperactivity or restlessness. If the intensity is great, you will have problems behaving normal and may not be able to function well in work settings, relationships, coping and discipline.

Does the person with hallucination problem need counselling? Medicine given once worked and the patient was recovered to great extent, but the problem again came. Shall the same medicine work?

Does the person with hallucination problem need counselling? Medicine given once worked and the patient was recovered...
Hi, please consult the doctor he may want to change medication depending upon current symptoms and severity. If you need to help someone else suffering from hallucinations, it is important to remain calm throughout the entire process. Hallucinations can become sources of severe anxiety, so the patient might already be in a state of panic. Adding more stress and panic to the situation will only worsen things. Calmly explain to the patient that you are unable to see, hear, feel, taste, or touch the sensation he or she is describing. Explain this in a straightforward and non-accusatory manner to avoid upsetting the patient. If the hallucinations are mild to moderate, and if the patient has had past episodes of hallucinations, you may also try to explain that the sensations he or she is experiencing are not real. Patients who experience hallucinations for the first time or those with severe hallucinations may not be able to understand that they are hallucinating, however, and may lash out if they are questioned or doubted. Distract the patient. Depending on the circumstances, it might be helpful to distract the patient by switching topics of conversation or by physically moving to a different location. This is especially true of mild to moderate hallucinations, but you may not be able to reason with patients experiencing severe hallucinations. All the best.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I cannot give up smoking. Please help me.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You must have been smoking for a long time and may have tried several times to quit it too. But you must keep trying until you succeed. This is the pattern with smoking: you fail and then you try again. One day you will succeed. You may feel that it is impossible to give up at your age or for having smoked so much. But that it not true. I know of so many people who have given up and were very high level smokers (even 40 cigarettes a day!). YOur heart condition does not even give you an option. You can follow some of these instructions to help you this time. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Addiction to nicotine gum is a common phenomena. Nothing to worry about that. Understand that nicotine gum is not that addictive or harmful as cigarette. Therefore, slowly reduce the quantity of nicotine gums and don't worry. Take care.

Smoking is harmful whether it is one or two a day, period. You can visit an ent specialist and investigate your throat. It does not matter if there is any connection or not with the smoking. Some people are more susceptible to the effects of cigarette smoke more than others. It is better to be safe rather than sorry.

You are right that your stress causes the headaches. Aapko problem pata hai toh solution bhi aasaan hai. Stress kam karne ke liye kuchh saral tareeke try kariye. 1. Deep breathing. Din mein kam se kam 5 baar 5 slow aur gehri saans leejiye. You can count till 5 for breathe in and again till 5 for breathe out. 2. Imagery. Try to imagine a relaxing scenery. Jitna ho sake utna detail mein imagine karein. Try to imagine relaxing sounds also, like flowing water, birds, wind, etc. Do this just before sleeping. 3. Muscle relaxation. Lie down in a quite and relaxed position. Slowly and gradually, release the tightness from your body. Aapko ek ek karke apni muscles ko dheela chhodna hai. Start from your feet. Then relax your legs, thighs, back, abdomen, chest, shoulder, arms, hands, neck, head and face. Keep your eyes closed and breathe deeply. 4. Seek professional help.

You are right quality sexual relationship is very important for bonding and marital relationship. It appears that her lack of desires may be related to her dissatisfied sex life till now. Its usual in many couples because of lack of understanding of basics of sexuality in both partners and both of them keep doing sex as per their understanding which may be inadequate because usually people learn sexuality by hearsay guidance and porn watching which is not proper. Best way is to sit down with partner, talk with trust and respect without blaming. Also talk to/meet an expert sexologist and learn basics and find right guidance, medicines may not be needed. Move it will be fine, connect now.

5 Ways Stress Knocks Your Love Life Way Off Track

Psychologist, Mumbai
5 Ways Stress Knocks Your Love Life Way Off Track

Stress affects every part of your life including your love life. If you’re feeling too overwhelmed and tense, chances are that you’re libido and appearance will suffer. Studies have shown that being stressed increases the production of cortisol in the body, which makes you less appealing to members of the other sex.

Take a look at five ways stress can affect your love life.

  1. It changes your perception of the relationship: Being under pressure makes you irritable and snappy. Relationships exposed to high levels of stress most often turn negative with time. This is because stress alters our perception of reality and understanding of people. When you’re stressed, you tend to focus more on what’s wrong with the relationship than what’s right. This can lead to an increase in conflicts between partners.
  2. It lowers your confidence: For any relationship to work, you must first love yourself. Stress causes self doubt and lowers your self confidence. If you’re looking to start a relationship, this can increase your inhibitions in talking to new people or going on a date. If you’re already in a relationship, this lowered self confidence can lead to problems in bed.
  3. It affects your appearance: Stress affects not only your emotional and mental frame of mind but your physical state as well. Being under pressure to perform can result in binge eating and make you put on weight. Stress itself increases the production of cortisol in the body which in turn makes the skin secrete more oil. Stress can also cause brittle nails and hair loss. Stress also lowers your energy levels and makes you withdraw from social life.
  4. It lowers your sex drive: Stress makes it difficult to focus on anything other than whatever is troubling you. It has a direct connection to your libido; the higher the stress, the lower your libido. For men this can lead to erectile dysfunctioning while for women it can reduce the amount of natural lubrication produced and make sex uncomfortable.
  5. It can suppress fertility: Cortisol can also prevent women from ovulating. This can lower your chances of conceiving a child. this is noticed especially in cases of sudden spikes in stress levels and varies from woman to woman. It can also cause fertility problems in men.

The good news is that stress can easily be managed to improve your love life. Meditating and exercising are two effective stress busters that can enhance your love life. Doing this along with your partner not only helps reduce stress but can also bring you closer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult  the doctor and ask a free question.

Why is that once a person starts taking alcohol or drugs, its is difficult to get rid of this habit?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Sonali. Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and drugs ultimately affect and trigger the pleasure center of the brain. Whenever these substances are used, the pleasure center get activated. Then on habituation, the pleasure center asks for more and more of the substance, just because it gets pleasure. De addiction therapy can help the addict. Take care.

I think you are feeling insecure. It is necessary, to explore your fear of death. This fear is so intense that even when asleep you are disturbed because of your thoughts. You may be having certain doubts or worries about sex as well. Kindly consult a counsellor who will help you to come out of both the problems.
